My Olympus Stylus 850SW won't turn on. Thought it was a drained battery, got new battery, then thought it was my charger. Bought new charger. Battery is fully charged, camera still will not turn on.

Good day,

Link above leads you to the Stylus 850SW manual-see page 62. Please make sure that you are using Olympus Lithium Ion Battery only, as this is the only battery the camera is accepting. Using exhausted battery will make the camera to turn off.

If the problem still persist, kindly contact Olympus Help desk for more details.

Regards.

Battery charger flashing red


Although the manuals nothing says about flashing red light on charger, my best guess is the battery is defect.
Try to remove the battery several times and start the charging again and again. But when after a few attempts the LED starts flashing again, you better buy a new battery. When you don't use the camera for a longer period, make it a habit, to charge the battery every 3 months or so.

Try charging it for an hour even if it is indicating that it is already full in 10 minutes. If the battery still gets drained after a few shots, then you should change your charger.

My new olympus stylus 850sw is not working. The flash settings do not seem to work, and all the pictures turn out either really dark, or a bright white screen. I've altered all the settings, and nothing is...


You could have a problem with the board of the camera. I hope you did not drop the camera. If what you say is happening try to restart the computer of the camera by removing the main battery. It also has a reserve battery and I suggest you remove that too. In about an hour put the batteries back and see if the camera has reset itself. If it does not work I hope you applied for the extended warranty and just send it back to the camera shop if they handle it or directly to Olympus. Good Luck

I have an Olympus 850sw and each time I turn it on it asks to enter the date and time. Why is that?


Most of the cameras with a date time clock have a secondary internal power source like a small watch type battery some point and shoot cameras use a storage cell which takes power from the main battery. This means when the main battery looses power the camera clock will hold a setting for about 1 day or 24 hours. To keep the camera clock set you need to keep a charge in the main battery. Here is a screen shot from the manual explaining this function.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

I have the same problem with my 770 SW. The funny thing is, some outlets in my house will allow it to charge, some will just make the light flash. I found your question looking for a better solution. Try all the outlets in your house with the charger, I know it sounds silly, but it works for me.

This happened to me before and its because i put the battery in the charger the wrong way up. Make sure you put it in so that the side with OLYMPUS in it in big letters is facing up!

Camera Draining Battery


Lachuaeyes,
I have a different model of Olympus and I read that you did not always have this problem and you already have replaced the battery so an old battery is not likely the issue. I suspect you might have something that is draining that was not set in the past. I keep my batteries longer by not using flash most of the time. Is there someone new using the camera that perhaps leaves it on longer than you do after finishing, perhaps uses flash longer? Is there a setting for auto shutdown that has been changed to not turn off as fast as it used to? If none of these I wonder if the flash is requiring more energy than in the past.
Could you tell me if the battery is draining even if you don't use it or is it only if you are using it does it drain faster.

Another possibility is that the charger is not charging so well as it used to but I suspect you leave it in long enough and more.

If you have the ability to check the output voltage of the charger with a multimeter you would be sure it is really putting out enough volts to charge fully.

Please let me know if you have further questions.

Olympus Stylus 730 Digital - Won't work 60 days old


I'm having the exact same problem. I was in the middle of zooming on a shot and it froze, so I turned the camera off and on, and now I get the 5-chimes+Zoom Error screen. This is nuts, I've only had the thing for six months, and it was $250 (got the Stylus 730). I *think* I got a replacement plan so that's good. But still... I hope circuit city lets me get a different brand b/c I'm not happy with this now. The only problem I had before was the HORRID shutter delay. I want a model that doesn't have that problem .
